Insurance salesman to me: Any health conditions we should know of?
Me: Well, I have Type 2 diabetes.
Insurance salesman: Do you take medication for it?
Me: I do.
Insurance salesman: What medications do you take for the diabetes?
Me: I take insulin.
Insurance salesman: Oh, you're a Type 1. We don't insure Type 1s.
Me: I'm not a Type 1. I'm a Type 2 who uses insulin along with diet and exercise.
